  • In the mood to display your creative side? Here’s your chance.

Launched in response to a canceled exhibition back in 1986, Contemporary Art Month continues to bring San Antonio's creative community together with tireless fanfare. Formerly held amid the punishing heat of July, CAM wisely relocated to the milder month of March in 2010 and became a nonprofit in 2012. Traditionally kicked off the first Thursday of March with a festive round of openings at Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum (CAM's official birthplace), the month-long celebration boasts a packed calendar highlighted by such fan faves as the "CAM Perennial" exhibition at Museo Guadalupe, the erotic pop-up "Seven Minutes in Heaven" at the seedy Fox Motel and the CAMMIE Awards & Closing Party at the Linda Pace Foundation's serene CHRISpark. contemporaryartmonth.com
